ABSA Premiership side Bloemfontein Celtic are doing everything in their power to ensure Zimbabwe international defender Ronald Pfumbidzai enters South Africa ahead of the resumption of the 2019-20 season.
The Zimbabwean is still stuck in Harare as he cannot travel to Bloemfontein due to the restrictions placed due to coronavirus (Covid-19).
Pfumbidzai returned to Zimbabwe earlier this year before the lockdown as he was recovering from a groin injury.
With the Super Diski set to resume on August 8, the defender is now racing against time to return to his base.
“Pfumbidzai is unable to fly and come back to South Africa, that’s the problem,” Celtic team manager Lesiba Mothokoa told Kick Off yesterday.
“He is still busy trying to see what he can do but the problem is when he comes this side, also he has to quarantine another 14 days. We are trying to see, maybe even if he can come later. But as long as he can be able to come this side, even if he misses these games, but when we start to prepare for next season he can be this side.
“But what I heard is that the PSL are also trying to see what they can do because even Jomo (Sono) raised it in the meeting. They said they will see what they can do even though they are not promising anything, but they will try.”
